I have recently found a type 34 karmann ghia that i would like to purchase
Based on the sellers information - this car is either a 1964 or a 1965 model but i wouldnt trust this information
i also have the engine number and the chassis number
using this info,
can anyone tell me the steps to take to correctly identify the exact year of this type 34 as well as the exact model
(are they visible differences between the type 34 models or years?)

thanks in advance

There are several ways to identify a 1964 from a 1965, but there are some cross-over parts too.
The easiest way to identify a T34 model year is by the chassis # (in front spare tire area, under rear seat).
If the VIN# isn't available, share photos of the interior and we'll go from there.

1964 Identifying parts: amber-needle gauges, small-diameter speedo
1965 Identifying parts: white-needle gauges, large-diameter speedo (almost all)

Since the VIN # begins with 345 this is definitely a 1965 model year.
But it's one of the cross-over models (earliest 1965s) with the small-diameter speedometer.
But definitely a 1965.

what exactly is a cross-over model?

under the 1965 year, are they different models of type 34s?
ive heard that within the 1965 year there are diifferent models such as 199, 62
how can i tell what model this type 34 is?

i am also assuming the chassis number is the same thing as the VIN?
